Workers with the History Center will collect the tribute items that people have left at the club.  

The work began Friday so crews can place a new fence around the club. The city says the fence will be smaller so people don't have to stand so close to the road and will include commemorative artwork. 

The History Center is preserving all of the non-perishable items for a permanent memorial for the victims of the June 12 attack. 

Meanwhile, News 6 has learned 333 people have filed claims for the OneOrlando Fund.

That includes family members of all 49 people who lost their lives. All injured survivors also filed claims to get some of the more than $25 million donated since the attack. 

Distribution of the money is set to begin at the end of September.
